DeNA and Hasbro have a Transformer game headed our way later this year, TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION. The new title will be the official game for the new movie that is hitting theaters June 27. The title is in active development but today’s press release clues us in a little to what the game will look like and how it will play out.
TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION will be a combat runner style game with some of your favorite Autobots.
The title will come in the free-to-play format, so you can expect some degree of real money spending. I would imagine it will be tailored to unlocking other Autobot friends and upgrades like armor and weapons and such. Speaking of weapons, part of the press release offers up a freebie to those that want to sign up for pre-registration through www.transformers-mobile.com with their Facebook account. If you choose to do that, you will get a free Rare Transmetal Rocket Launcher.
They don’t give us a solid date for the launch of the game other than “later this year”, we hope it is close too, or shortly after, the theatrical release of the new film though.
“The TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION mobile game will deliver an explosive interactive entertainment experience on mobile devices for TRANSFORMERS fans and consumers looking to extend their movie experience after the credits roll,” said Barry Dorf, vice president of partnerships and alliances at DeNA. “This isn’t your typical runner game; this game puts the player in the middle of an action-packed Hollywood blockbuster where it’s destroy or be destroyed!”
